Style Council – Ever Changing Moods
Sky Art’s documentary on The Style Concil is almost perfect and has me reaching for Weller’s 80s work. This one ends on repeat quiet a lot – this version fitting nicely into autumnal weather and lockdown uncertainty. Weller’s best?
Run the Jewels – Cyberpunk
The new track, but particularly the new video, from RTJ bangs like fuck.
80’s references, neon lights, Blade Runner type of stylings; total flaweless.
I used to pray to God but I think he took a vacation, cause now the state of Cali is run by these corporations.
Thurston Moore – Cantaloupe
A flick through the new MoJo fills me with dread as I’ve listened to only a fraction of this year’s best of albums…
I remember how long it took me this year to get through last year’s list
Thurston’s Cantaloupe stands out from the first album I pick up to check out- is that Hendrix on the guitar??
Pa Salieu – My Family
Nasty and hard-edge grime/trap comes to Coventry with a video drowned in the feeling of early Wu’s and Specials
Luluc – Dreaming
Maybe the loveliest piece of gentle, comfort-blanket I’ve heard this year..
Van Halen – Jump
Various things have me locked into an 80’s guitar pop sound for most of the second half of the month – this one being pretty much on constant repeat...
Dire Straits – Money for Money
…Apart from the breaks when this one repeats instead.
Look at them yo’yos
Chubby and the Gang- Speed kills
I love everything about this…
Beastie Boys – Hey Ladies
I finally managed to get a cracked version of the Beastie’s live show – soooooooooo inspiring.
Jade Bird – Side Effects
A lovely peice from local a popster – perfect in just about every way.
Human League – Love Action
Still floating around 80’s synth pop and glorious keyboard tinkling.
I believe in me, I believe in you, and you know I believe in love
